What does Software as a Service (SaaS) mean, and of what benefit is it to me?

Our Cirrus ABS Small Business Suite website and our award-winning eBusiness Suite technology are both prime examples of Software as a Service (SaaS) products. Essentially, each is a software application that we license to you and other customers as a “service on demand.” You subscribe to it on a “pay-as-you-go” basis. This enables you to take advantage of the most advanced Web technology without paying a sky-high price for it in one lump sum up front. For a small monthly fee, you get the applied software you need – no more, no less – to achieve your business goals. And you pay for it only as long as you want it. The SaaS model is an extremely efficient, cost-effective way for you to establish a strong Web presence and easily manage information input/outflow.
